Had the same issue, solved by installing the correct video driver, so for my NC10 I did: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel

I'm wondering about this too. Ubuntu based distrubutions always do this to me. Manjaro is the only one that I haven't had this happen before. The only fix I know is is using xrandr -s 1920x1080 -r 60 Do you by any chance use 144hz monitor?

It turns out that the Kernel upgrade was a red herring -- the issue was the secure boot upgrade that happened at the same time, which blacklisted the NVidia drivers. This is essentially the same issue as found here: Ubuntu 16.04 kernel 4.4.0-21 not loading nvidia/vboxdrv modules anymore (Required key not available) Confirmed by running $ sudo modprobe -v ...

Same problem, here. I booted into 3.13.0-91-generic and everything is fine. However, booting into 3.13.0-92-generic introduces the problem. It appears as if my Nvidia X Server settings have been completely wiped in 3.13.0-92-generic. Edit: Disable secure boot as mentioned in the accepted answer.

I can confirm exactly the same problem with the Lenovo Yoga 900 using USB-C to HDMI and DisplayPort adapters. The display is blank at 60Hz even though xrandr reports the mode is available. Reducing frequency slightly also does not work - but going down to 30Hz does work - however the latency is then horrible. I have eliminated my hardware as the problem, ...

I had similar issues connecting to a TV although mine was 1368x768, so my exact answer won't apply. But you may be able to use the same method. You can try to add a "mode" by opening a terminal and typing cvt 1920 1080 60 (if 1920 x 1080 is the resolution you want, otherwise change the numbers). This will generate a line of data that you need for the next ...

You need to disable SecureBoot in your UEFI (BIOS) settings.

You should install the proper display drivers. Enter in System Configuration -> Software and updates, in the Additional drivers tab you should see a list with some Intel-GPU drivers (these used to be privatives). Choose the most recent one and apply changes. Restart and you should be able to choose your screen resolution.

the EDID data returned by your monitor is not correct. This data is how the monitor communicates its preferred settings to the graphics card. There are several ways to fix this : try a different cable - if you have another one its worth a try , also try your cable on another system. define your monitor settings in your xorg.conf - add a monitor section ...

Could you please elaborate more what you mean by "have been unsuccessful in installing Ubuntu 14 - 16"? Was the installation successful and you just did not manage to configure graphics correctly or the whole installation failed? If you are able to install Ubuntu 16.04, try to replace installed kernel with kernel 4.6.3 (how-to below for your 64-bit ...

Create a .desktop file in the /etc/xdg/autostart folder. Any .desktop file in that folder will be started as it is a system wide used folder that all users existing and new upon logging in will have applications start from. No need to create separate startup applications / links / shortcuts for each user. More information can be found here: FreeDesktop.Org/...

I got linux mint 18(beta) with cinnamon to work on my razer blade 2016. It works fine except for suspend. I can watch youtube/twitch for more than 3 hours without changing any settings. AFAIK, people have not figured out a perfect soln for the suspend. Personally, I set my laptop to do nothing when lid closed. As for the nvidia driver, since I use linux for ...

I had the same problem with my Samsung monitor, after a lot of reasearch i found that I was using VGA cable and monitor was not detected, connecting through HDMI solved the problem and all resolutions are now listed. However, VGA all works fine with Windows.

I've had a similar problem. I wasn't able to get 2560x1600 from HP ZDisplay while connected with VGA, Mini DisplayPort/HDMI or Mini DisplayPort/HDMI + HDMI/HDMI cables. I've solved it by buying a Mini DisplayPort/DisplayPort cable with a declared support for 2560x1600 and using it.

I fixed this in in Display settings (System Settings --> Display). The three monitors I use are different sizes, but after dragging the monitors so that they were aligned along the bottom axis, my icons returned my primary monitor on the left Like this
